100,000 years ago, the first known human civilization created a supercomputer named GAMP, short for General Artificial Matrix Producer, with the purpose of making human clones that serve the civilization. Eventually, however, an error in GAMP made it create clones that thought humanity was inferior and that they must "protect" it by conquering the people they were meant to serve. The clones' rebellion was a success for they were stronger. The GAMP later left Earth to escape the Ice Age and chose 6 habitable planets: Terminus, Atlantus,
Daerius, Krakatos, Bagurius, and Xevious. The group for Bagurius rebelled and stayed on the Earth. 4000 years later, a human named Mu and his female android friend Eve left Earth and traveled to Xevious on an abandoned ship named the Solvalou, only to end up getting imprisoned by the GAMP. After being freed by Mio Veetha, Mu, Eve, and the female Xevian, travel to Earth on the Solvalou ship. 12,000 years later, the GAMP begin their invasion of Earth to take it back. This is where the war against GAMP begins.

It is possible to get game machines in joysticks that include Xevious. Those sticks also include VideoGame/PolePosition and {{Galaga}}.

The player uses an 8-way joystick to pilot a combat aircraft called a Solvalou, which is armed with a forward-firing "zapper" for aerial targets and a "blaster" which fires an unlimited supply of ranged air-to-surface bombs for ground targets. The game was noted for the varied terrain below, which included forests, airstrips, bases, and mysterious [[UsefulNotes/Peru Nazca Line-like drawings]] on the ground.

The game has 16 levels but these [[DirectContinuousLevels merge into one another seamlessly]]. The Solvalou continually advances over varying terrain and the boundaries between levels are marked only by dense forests being overflown. If the player dies, play normally resumes from the start of the level. If the player has completed at least 70% of the level before dying, play will begin at the start of the next level instead. As the Solvalou constantly flies forward, it is theoretically possible to advance without killing any enemies.

While it saw limited popularity in the U.S., ''Xevious'' was a huge cult hit in Japan, and to this day is considered one of the greatest video-games of all time. Popular musicians Haruomi Hosono (Yellow Magic Orchestra) and Keisuke Kuwata (Southern All Stars) were known to be fans of the game, and the former produced an album of music from Namco video-games, with ''Xevious'' as its centerpiece. A follow-up 12" single featured in its liner notes an entire science-fiction short story by Endoh, set in the world of ''Xevious'', with even a rudimentary fictional language.

Added DiffLines:

* CopyProtection: Very weak. All it does is change the EasterEgg to warn the player that they're on a "dead copy production". Apparently, the message was iconic enough to merit a toggle in the ''Namco Museum DS'' port.
